Are you sure this isn't a flirting skill? First "Jij mooie tulp van mij!" but now "Jij bent mijn licht in de nacht." ;)

Let's not forget "Een dag zonder jou is zoals een tuin zonder bloemen"

And "Je bent zoet net zoals en aardbei"

Are there any plans to add lessons like "flirting" or "idioms" to the other languages? dL did it for a few languages a couple of years back, but haven't seen them since. I thought those were a good idea.

"Light in the dark" is a better translation/meaning in English than "light in the night" right?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Rekty

The word used is "nacht", which is night. The term "dark" hasn't be shown yet.

Can I say “{@style = color : saddlebrown}Jij bent mijn zoon in de donkerte”?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Saartjeislief

awnser on gustavo: no you cant say that. what you are saying is "you are my son in the darkness" as you can see it is very different from "you are my light in the night". hope this helps you
